true. My wife Dayle gives blood several times a year, because she believes
that it's something she can do to give back in return for the many blessings
she's received. She's up in the multiple gallons given. I used to give
blood (back in college, one of my fraternity's service projects was to bring
in and staff the Bloodmobile every quarter), until I contracted hepatitus a
number of years ago. The worst thing about that (even beyond the liver
damage, etc.) is that I can no longer give blood.
